The Salmon Ponds, circa 1861, is the oldest trout hatchery in the Southern Hemisphere. It was the birthplace of trout in Australia and the origin of Tasmania’s legendary trout fishery.
The Salmon Ponds and hatchery is an ideal venue for a wheelchair user. The whole site is basically level and very easy to access. There is two toilets available. One in the main building and one down at the BBQ area/ fishing platforms. You can fish for trout on the three platforms available. This is no extra cost and is exclusively for wheelchair users. The ponds themselves are easily accessed by a level gravel path at their side. The museum is accessed by a gentle ramp with no door lip. A great café with level entry and good circulation. A must see site a short trip from b.
